Letters to Littles {A letter to BabyE on his Half Birthday}

Dear 6 month old BabyE, 

You speak in squeaks and squeals of pure joy and delight. Except for when you shriek! Everything is getting a little more dramatic lately. You have two teeth and two wildly swirling feathers of hair on top of your head, one on the front and one on the back. All the rest is bald and makes you look even more like your Daddy. You look more grown up now, not the gummy baby anymore. 

You smile in grins so big they fill up your whole face and reach down in a full body wiggle that gets every limb involved. You always seem to be watching me, waiting for me to look at you so you can flash that killer smile. I love being the one that can always bring a smile to your face.

Letters to LittlesYou scoot in erratic patterns across the floor. Even if you scoot backwards and sideways, never forwards, you always seem to get what you're after now. You scooted over to the stereo and somehow got lucky and turned it on to your lullaby CD, at an appropriate volume even. You laid there staring and listening for ten full minutes, looking back at me every once in a while to make sure I saw the amazing miracle you had performed. The idea of staying on your quilt to play is long gone. Little spots of drool dot the carpet. I'm sure you've now eaten your share of carpet lint. It's so fun to watch you learn. You are experimenting with pushing up on your hands and knees. Will you be crawling next week? 

You practice laughing in every possible moment.  You love to laugh at anything and nothing: at Mom and Dad having a quiet conversation, at sitting up tall and steady on your blanket, at getting your diaper changed.

You are taking every DVD off the shelf, so I better go now. 

I love you darling,

  1. Aww, what a sweet letter. It's so fun to see them grow up, but also sad at the same time to see the moments flying by! He's such a cutie pie.

  2. They really are growing up too fast! This is such a fun stage though!
